By Will Oliver, October 9th 2013 — with 2 comments

Broken Bells

Believe it or not, it’s been three years (!) since James Mercer/Danger Mouse’s collaboration group Broken Bells released their debut album. Time sure does fly.

Today they released a video teaser for their new album on their website. The album is titled After The Disco, and will be released in Janury 2014. The teaser includes a new song that sounds heavy funk/disco oriented, reminding me a lot of Empire Of The Sun.

Excited to hear the full thing. I can always use some new James Mercer.

Find the teaser posted below.

Real Estate have been teasing new material at their live shows, such as when they played at a high school during a benefit show, or when they played one of the final shows at Maxwell’s.

They’ve released a short but delicious video teaser showing them playing some of that new material in a cool looking studio. We can expect to see the new album sometime next year on Domino.

They’ve also announced some new tour dates, which includes a stop at Bowery Ballroom in October 25. Find the full dates below along with the teaser.

By Will Oliver, September 4th 2013


MGMT’s new self-titled album comes out soon, on 9/17 via Columbia Records, to be exact. They’ve released a little teaser trailer/short film showcasing a few tracks from the album. It shows the band getting suspicious as the NSA is spying on them brushing their teeth and practicing. It’s a pretty cool clip.

Be sure to check it out to preview some other tracks from the album, including lead single, “Your Life Is A Lie.”

Arcade Fire Release Reflektor Teaser Video

The wait is almost over. On September 9, at 9 p.m., Arcade Fire will do something, which is probably the release a new single. We don’t know for sure if it’s the title of the new album (out October 29) or the single, but most of the big shots are saying that this is the title of the new album. Maybe its both. Either way, we are terribly excited and can’t wait to get to Monday (which also means we will see a new Breaking Bad!).

Oh yeah, they’re also scoring Spike Jonze’s new film, Her.

The band have just uploaded a short but very sweet teaser video for the song/album, and its only getting us more excited. Whatever it is, it looks, and sounds, great. Find the video posted below.

Cults - Static

Cults have seemingly been touring for their debut album forever. They’re new album was long overdue, good thing that they just announced their new album today. It’s called Static, and it comes out October 15 via Columbia Records. Cults themselves produced the album along with help from Shane Stoneback (who worked on the debut) and Ben Allen.

They released a teaser trailer for the album that features 2 new album tracks: “We’ve Got It” & “So Far.” The latter sounds epic as well. Watch it below.

Ernest Greene, a.k.a. Washed Out is back with a new album titled Paracosm. If you’re wondering what the hell a paracosm is, it’s a detailed imaginary world, or fantasy world. So think Game Of Thrones/Lord Of The Rings.

It will come out August 13 via Sub Pop. The announcement came with a trailer video with some damn cool imagery to go with it. You also get to hear some short clips of what is likely new material from the album.

He’s apparently trying to distance himself from the chillwave image people have of him, as he used 50 different instruments during the recording of the album.

Watch the trailer below.

Franz Ferdinand - Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action

Franz Ferdinand
have finally announced a new album: Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. That’s the album art above. It will come out via Domino on August 27.

It’s mind boggling to think that this is their first album since 2009’s Tonight. They spent the last year recording the album in frontman Alex Kapranos’ Scottish Studio, and Nick McCarthy’s Sausage Studios in London. Kapranos gave us this when asked for a quote:

The Intellect Vs The Soul, played out by some dumb band.


Below, watch the short trailer they released for the album, as well as the tracklist.
